An excellent evening. The food, service and ambience were wonderful.
We had great service and the food was really good!! The fried chicken did not disappoint!!
exceeded all of our expectations. Service was done with teamwork, food quality and preparation was way beyond typical, and folks were friendly even though super busy. They have a great mojo going on in this restaurant and with this team. Bravo!
Our server was fantastic, but I think our experience is overall an issue that all restaurants are having during the pandemic. My husband's entree came out 30 mins after mine (and service felt slow and disjointed). I'm giving them the benefit of the doubt. But just a bummer as this was our ten year anniversary dinner and we had heard such good things.
Very good meal, food was well prepared and tasty. Service was also very good with a a very nice atmosphere.
So fantastic! Chalkboard well exceeded my expectations. We went as a family party of 6 to celebrate my parents' wedding and wow was the staff so over-the-top amazing. They really pulled out all the stops to make us feel special. The food was amazing!
Everything about this gem was completely delightful!
From the hostess, our server and her wine recommendation, our charming booth, and the food! I had expectations for chalkboard, as I have read in multiple places about the varying daily menu, the exceptional quality of food and service, etc, and every expectation was surpassed. The hospitality was remarkably professional, yet warm. The entire experience felt personalized for us, which is a rarity. I would recommend this lovely restaurant to anyone that is not only looking for a great meal, but also a pleasant overall experience. I found a delectable vegetarian house-made pasta that balanced the perfect amount of heartiness and warmth with freshness. I do wish I could taste all of the ever-changing menu, but regardless of what is ordered I am certain it will be delicious!
The food and cocktail were yummy. Very small portions
A great menu with lots of options. Amazing service. Good wine list.
Very good food, but quite noisy. There were 4 of us, and it was a little hard to hear each other without raising our voices.
We had a remarkable Anniversary dinner with excellent food, wine and service. The rear terrace worked ideally for us, but there are various indoor dining spaces that were equally nice. Wine selection was not very extensive, but a nicely curated list of great wines without breaking the bank.
This was our first time to try the restaurant and we loved it. Will definitely be back
Food was incredible...service was unfortunate. Server had great energy, but not trained properly. 20 mins before we were acknowledged and empty cocktail glasses the entire dinner.
All of the food was amazing. Every course was excellent. Can’t wait to return for another great experience.
Chalkboard was a wonderful anniversary dinner date and we enjoyed sitting outside! Our waitress was amazing and gave us wonderful suggestions on the food and wine pairings. Would go there again in a heartbeat!
We had a wonderful meal with warm friendly service. Definitely get the biscuit sliders.
Food was outstanding. Creative and well executed. Service was warm and attentive with great recommendations and just enough attention without being intrusive. We ate really well during our trip to wine country and Chalkboard topped the list as the best meal we had. Definitely recommend!
The food was okay, very average. Pastas drowned in butter and oil. The wine we ordered was bad…
The fried chicken thighs, homemade pastas are so delicious! Just amazing!! Salad greens so fresh and perfectly dressed.
Superior all the way around. Will be returning soon. Thank you!
We were at a perfect table, outside and tucked away. The food was mixed and a bit overpriced in my opinion. The corn soup was especially a shocker, two tablespoons arrived in a tiny vessel. It was probably the cheapest thing on the menu, but even at $5 I felt taken advantage of.
Tomato salad was large and chock full of in season delicious tomatoes. The advertised Thai preparation largely absent though.
Fresh pasta was gummy. Shrimp were yummy. Steak well prepared, but at $42 could have been a larger portion.
Didn’t beat expectations from reviews I’d seen. Each dish was overly simple in flavor - either salty or flavorless. Our order was not coursed out properly leaving everything on our table until we ask to slow the courses down. Felt more like bar snacks than a nice restaurant.
So amazing! Our waitresss was excellent and the food was impeccable. Great wine recommendation and amazing atmosphere.
Celebrating our friends 50th birthday. Food was outstanding!!! I highly recommend the fried chicken and any cocktail from Trent. Our waitress was wonderful as well. I can’t say enough good things about our experience.
We had a fabulous time at Chalkboard. Food was very good, ambience was lovely and it was a delightful experience. Highly recommend this excellent restaurant.
Very limited menu
I would go back just for the focaccia bread! Outstanding!!
Steamed clams very unique
This was a very nice dining experience overall. After a day of wine tasting and snacking we were looking for a light dinner. My dining partner and I split a creative and tasty salad; she had strozzapreti pasta with shrimp and Old Bay seasoning which was delicious. Mine (mafaldine pasta with pesto) was uninspiring however. A sample menu from fall 2020 which I saw online would have given more interesting choices; I think when the menu is fairly narrow, each dish really has to do its job well and mine just didn't hit the mark.
Food is excellent and the service is always great. One of our favorite places to go for a date night.
Food was incredible. Service was awful - we felt ignored.
Great food with proper portions. Fantastic flavors
Their menu was so unique and delicious. We loved the plates designed for sharing. The salmon crudo (crudo of the day) was so amazing!
Really great items but nothing really anchors menu if you want meal.
Could use one more protein or even veggie main option to round out menu.
Deserts need work.
Food delicious and staff well trained.
The restaurant is lovely, but not pretentious - a mix of out-of-towners in "evening out" clothes and locals in "I don't want to cook tonight" clothes. Food is very good, service is friendly and on-point.
Lovely outdoor area, great food and service. We'd definitely go back.
Great spot to stop in Healdsburg after wine tasting. Beautiful patio area and excellent food.
10-outta-10…. Times 10!
Everyone in our party was delighted with the food, ambiance, service, attention-to-detail & overall experience. Soup to nuts deLish!
Two orders per person is plenty of food. We took some home!
